“Lattes without coffee!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This place is scamming people by giving them "lattes" with just milk and water. Baked goods are not good!!

“Yummy Treats in a fast, casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

During our recent week in Carmel, my husband and I stopped by Café Carmel at least once a day for a casual lunch, or a delightful bakery treat. Delicious wrap sandwiches, fantastic quiche, salads etc. The pumpkin cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted and the turtle brownie was also great. Prices were quite reasonable considering the excellent quality of the food. There are other bakeries in Carmel, but this is the best one we've tried. More menu items to choose from and more seating for families.

“Amazing personable staff, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

food is tasty and attractive with lots of variety, and the staff is the best. thanks to jhonny for actually keeping the cafe open later than the standard hours because customers were enjoying the ambience. Hardworking future pediatrician, Jessica, was all smiles, even after a long, and busy day. What a fun place to go to in Carmel any time of the day. Have been there for fresh coffee early in the morning, delicious pastries in the afternoon, and hot soup on a foggy night. And if you're lucky enough to run into the owner, she is wonderfully warm and welcoming.

“baked fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

While in Carmel we saw the temptations beautifully displayed and decided to go back the next day.
The delicious treats were equaled by the laughs we had with Johnny and Nichole. The guy is a riot and we cracked up for a long time. Nichole was so sweet and made a fresh cannoli for us.

“Great Sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Loved their sandwiches. Great lunch for a picnic. Also, take out was great for a change of pace in the evening instead of eating out again.
